Spiritual Death - Truth in Love Ministry

Dictionary of Mormonese

Spiritual Death

Separation from God’s presence. 1) Because of Adam’s Fall, all are spiritually dead. Because of Jesus’ atonement, all will be raised and brought back into his presence to be judged. 2) Because of a person’s sin. “Through the Atonement, Jesus Christ offers redemption from this spiritual death, but only when we exercise faith in Him, repent of our sins, and obey the principles and ordinances of the gospel” (True to the Faith, p. 48). Especially because LDS repentance involves much work on their part, this is not a free gift.

Biblical Christianity teaches that, because of the Fall, every person by nature is dead in sin and subject to God’s condemnation (Romans 5:12-19, Ephesians 2:1-3). God made us alive through faith in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:4-5).
